Attorney Peter Brill Says He’s Confident His Client, an Ex-NYPD Detective Accused of Stealing Champagne, Will be Cleared by a Jury
New York, New York – Three former NYPD detectives have been indicted for stealing nearly $3,000 worth of “Ace of Spades” Champagne from VIP guests at last year’s Electric Zoo music festival. The charges were announced on Monday by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.
Warren Golden, Jonathan Gonzalez, and Wojciech Czech were at the festival on Randall’s Island on September 3, 2022, for narcotics enforcement. Gonzalez is accused of putting two unopened bottles of Ace of Spades champagne into a backpack while several bottles were sitting in an ice bucket on a table in the VIP area.
Gonzalez, who is represented by Peter Brill, is also expected to be suspended without pay, police sources said.
“We are confident that Officer Gonzalez will be cleared of all charges when a jury is able to review all the evidence,” said Peter Brill, Gonzalez’s attorney.
